We got Inked!!!

















Stella and I went to the tattoo parlour today, to visit with my Ravelry (knitting) friend, Gina, and have her administer Mother/Daughter tatts. Marcus accompanied us for support and was in charge of documenting the whole dang thing. (Thanks Marcus!!) So when Stella was still "Katie" , a bunch of my friends and our children went camping every summer - Grrrl Camp!- and every trip, Katie would insist on using a sharpie pen to draw matching triskelian "tattoos" on our ankles. I would laugh and tell her that when I was "old" I'd get a tattoo with her.... she's had a few now, but this was my first (guess 50 is "old-enough" ha!) Here are some pictures to show how brave I was, and how very small it really is......
Mine is the Triskelian image that so enchants me (and appears on the Flag of the Isle of Mann, fyi). Stella's is a folded paper peace crane. Both of us got them on the inside of our left ankle..... forever :):):)
It was over before I could even squeeze out a tear -I was actually rather amazed that it was done! Stell's was larger, and she had to take a short break, but Gina had some really good chocolate stashed for just such moments- wow! Next time, I think I'll go for a larger one just for the candy........
